ABA Therapy

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy is the only clinically proven intervention for children with autism. Over the past 40 years, several thousand published research studies have documented the effectiveness of ABA. ABA focuses on using a scientific approach to understand why people do what they do, in other words, what motivates them to do what they do? With this knowledge, changes can be made or skills can be taught by using a systematic process based on continuous data collection and analysis. B.F. Skinner’s research taught the world that behavior is learned and motivation drives that learning. The science of ABA determines how to modify the environment through functional analysis to strengthen or weaken a behavior.

Ways We Help

Using the principles of ABA Therapy, we implement different strategies and methods to develop behavior with positive changes. Using ABA we can:

  • Build language and communication skills
  • Improve classroom behavior and performance
  • Overcome behavioral challenges
  • Develop social and play skills
  • Develop everyday living and self-care skills
  • Eliminate maladaptive (or negative) behaviors, such as self-stimulation, self-injurious behaviors and aggression
  • Increase positive behaviors to get needs met appropriately

“My son utilized North Star Autism Services and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Before North Star he couldn’t speak well, had many behavior problems, and really struggled in reading. Now he can talk in complete sentences, his behavior has improved dramatically, and he can read Level 3 books. The therapists are absolutely lovely, and they have a great amount of patience. I thank North Star for everything they’ve done for my son.”

“My son was diagnosed with ASD at 32 months just a few months shy of his 3 year old birthday. To say it was overwhelming would be an understatement. We started in home ABA immediately and have continued to do so for the past 3 ½ years. The team at North Star performed his initial assessments and have watched him as he blossomed from 20 words to full sentences, from tantrums to learning to taking deep breaths, from hitting and head banging to expressing himself. This team takes the time to get to know the child, pairs them with the right behavior technician, understand their needs and environment and lastly, trains the parents on how to handle challenging behaviors. I would say most of his improvements have occurred because of the team at North Star. I highly recommend this company and the staff will do their best to make sure your child is loved and supported.”
